Sheffield graduate and BBC Look North reporter Kate Bradbrook has achieved a remarkable double with two prestigious awards for her journalism – in the space of just two days.
Just a day after being named TV Broadcast Journalist of the Year for the county in the O2 Media Awards, Kate Bradbrook was handed the 2014 prize for Outstanding Journalism by the Royal Television Society (RTS) in Yorkshire.
Kate Bradbrook’s stunning one-two comes a year after the RTS named Kate (pictured above, third from left, at the RTS awards among her Look North colleagues) the region’s Most Promising Newcomer in its 2013 awards.
A delighted Kate Bradbrook told the Department of Journalism Studies: “It’s been quite a year! September marks ten years since I graduated from the University of Sheffield as a postgrad and what a journey it’s been.
“I was honoured to receive the Outstanding Journalism award. It was described by the judges as a ‘meteoric rise’.”
Kate Bradbrook studied MA Broadcast Journalism at Sheffield in 2003–04, is familiar to millions of viewers and listeners across our region through her work with the BBC. In 2013 she ran the Yorkshire Marathon to raise funds for the Martin House children’s hospice.
